      e36 BMWs are in another league of reliability compared to the newer turbo ones. Aside from the cooling system, they are pretty bullet proof. Consumer Reports actually rated them among the most...

      I'd have a hard time not buying a Porsche in your situation. Either a 997 or Cayman.

      Important questions no one has asked yet:

      Do you or your friends work on cars?

      Are you familiar with working on this vintage Mercedes (I assume you aren't because you are asking about them)?...

      I think just about everybody is missing the point here. It is not slow cars > fast cars. It is slow car being driven 9/10s > fast car being driven 2/10s. This is not unlike the manual vs....

      Spare me the condescension, bro. I think attitudes toward older cars vary regionally. In Seattle there are lots of people making six figures who drive older/vintage/classic cars by choice. That is...

      I would certainly expect a Ford dealer to be able to diagnose a simple problem on a 1988 Taurus or F-150. Cars are not something people buy to use for 5 years, like a computer. We expect them to last...

      My experience is about as many women drive stick as men, as a proportion of the population. Maybe there are more male "enthusiasts" who brag about driving manual, but just about as many women as men...

      Searching for e30s under 2 grand in Seattle (a large market) I found exactly 2: an eta parts car with no title for $1500 and a kinda rough 325e sedan with 205,000 miles for $2000. If I had 2 grand to...

      Maybe e36, but e30 pricing is nuts here in the northwest.

      I've never heard of head gaskets being a common problem on 850s, sounds like there may have been another issue.

      How much would your insurance company give you if for the Civic? Probably kbb value, which is much lower than what it's worth. Give it a couple years, these cars will be going for 10k+, like clean...

      Most people would be buying a GTI to "keep the miles off" their EM1 Civic Si, because those Civics are becoming very rare and going up in value, while GTIs are a dime a dozen, comparatively.

      My 740 likes to cruise just a hair under 80, which is quite a bit faster than people drive around here. My old 325e was really happy cruising at 90+ due to the smooth 6 and super long gearing, which...

      You can still buy a "base" Mustang or Camaro, neither of which have crank windows but that's because it's cheaper to include window motors than to design and produce a different door panel that most...

      I wouldn't swap the GTI for a car payment. You will miss the GTI, tire of the Scion which isn't a particularly nice car to be in, and still be paying it off. Doesn't make financial or emotional...

      At the time when the VR6 was being developed, there were other small cars with 6 cylinders, such as the P-body Plymouth Duster, J-Body Cavalier/Sunfire, Ford Tempo, and several more. The sporty cars...

      Try doubling that number out west. It may not fit your image, but I think the best option is a late 90's Legacy wagon with the reliable 2.2. Just as much space as the SUVs, just as durable, and...
